Atmospheric perspective like WOAH. I'm stunned by the use of color and composition. Looks like she's making her way through a dust storm-- though her poor eyes must be burning! You get across barren very well using mostly cool colors. I saw the comment above about looking like she's in a marsh, and I think the green overtones contribute to that. For hot desert, I might warm it up a little.
I love the subtle use of colours and shading. Great composition, though, you say it's a nomad traveling with her companion through dry terrain, if I might say, the terrain looks more like a marsh, due to the lack of detail, but more then that, the abundance of mist is really what throws it off, if it were dry terrain, there wouldn't be mist. But, I love this piece none the less for it! Brilliant work!
Thank you! I apprechiate your honest feedback. What you said makes a lot of sense and I wish I had thought of them while working. I suppose I can make it easy on myself and just change the description.
